Short Takes: Must Christians Always Obey Government?

Just a few thoughts on Romans 13 and whether or not Christians must always obey the governmental authorities. I find it fascinating that so many pastors and commentators today think that Paul’s words stand alone without any sort of context. Yet, if we look at numerous incidents from the life of Jesus, Paul and Peter, it appears that maybe Paul’s words in Romans 13:1-4 as well as Peter’s in 1 Peter 2 are far more nuanced than we might think.

Short Takes: Cancel Culture of Acts 21

In Acts 21, we read where Paul was falsely accused and without a trial, was attacked and beaten by the cancel mob wanted him dead. This wasn’t the first time this happened to Paul. In Asia Minor, a group of cancel culture Judaizers followed him from place to place stirring up the madness, anger and threats of cancellation against Paul in the hopes that he would be stoned to death.

God always intervened. God always protected Paul and kept him from actual death (even though on at least one occasion he was beaten and left for dead; Acts 14:19-28), until the appointed day of Paul’s actual death when God took Paul home to heaven.

God’s Coming Great Reset, Pt 1

In general and even with respect to many specifics, God has revealed His plans and those plans take into consideration and highlight Satan’s plans. What’s ultimately coming is not humanity’s “great reset,” but God’s Great Reset. Satan is on a leash. He’s always been on a leash. If he wasn’t, he would’ve killed Job. He’d probably kill each Christian who was fully committed to God and His will. Satan has limited power. He is not omniscient, omnipotent, or omnipresent. Satan is not God and that reality is very bristling to him, yet he has been working since his own fall to prove God wrong. This of course is the height of arrogance and his end will come soon enough.

Discerning the Times: February 5, 2021

Remember back when I highlighted the WHO recommending a lower cycle thresh hold (Ct) number be used in PCR tests to determine CV-19 infections? Well, a mere three weeks later, we are learning that CV-19 infections are down by 30% and deaths are down by 21%! [4] It’s a MIRACLE!! Actually, the miracle is determining if a person is infected with CV-19 since they have not isolated the CV-19 virion in the lab yet. In spite of this lack, they were apparently able to create a vaccine? No, they simply used a generic spike protein they “think” is similar to CV-19. We’re being played, folks, as I’m sure you know.

News and Notes Update: February 1, 2021

Understand please that when I say the PreTrib Rapture, I am talking about the Lord taking His Church/Body to be with Him prior to the pouring out of His WRATH. The Bible says “day of the Lord” is the start of God pouring out His wrath onto humanity and this earth. It is not a particular “day” but a period of time; the seven year Tribulation period. The entirety of that seven years is the pouring out of God’s wrath and note, all events of the Tribulation are directed by God from His throne room as evidenced by the fact that the apostle John is called up to heaven to begin viewing those events from that vantage point (Rev 4).

So, while the Church is fully exempt from all aspects of God’s wrath, we are not exempt from tribulation (small “t”) and persecution in this life. In fact, we are promised tribulation (Matthew 10:16-42; John 15:20; 2 Timothy 3:12; see also Revelation 2:10). Persecution is promised. If you are not at all being persecuted for being a Christian, maybe your circle of friends is too small. Maybe you’re not being an effective witness for Christ. I’m not trying to make you feel guilty. I’m simply noting that you may wish to take a look at things. Are you afraid to stand up for Jesus? Are you unwilling to speak out against the things that society has said we cannot be “negative” about? I’m not saying to go looking for persecution. I’m simply saying be prepared for the fact that if you’re not suffering for it now, it may well be on the way.

News and Notes Update: January 28, 2021

Satan needs this world to become one. He needs to rule it and will do so through his upcoming “spiritual” son, Antichrist. This will attempt to prove to the world that he (Satan) is the true owner, the true god of this world. To that end, he gives the elites who are willing to serve him everything they could possibly long for and more. I’m quite sure in moments of solitude when they are by themselves (which is likely very rare), they have to deal with their own fears and insecurities.

News and Notes: January 21, 2021

However, now that Biden is president, we have new information from the WHO. They tell us that the Ct# is essentially too high and because of it, too many cases are being identified without merit. Gosh, who knew? Many of us knew it but the time was not right until Joe Biden became president. Now, things can start rolling back so that there will be fewer false positives from the PCR tests.

It Is Past Time

If we consider world history from the mid-1800’s to now and we focus solely on the rise of Communism, it is very easy to see how Communism made the inroads it has made. They did it by slowly taking over the institutions and with continued deception, fraud and murder. That is abundantly clear.

While Satan Builds His Final Kingdom

The world is being seriously played. Satan is working overtime and his followers are doing whatever they can to push the lies in order to gain control of the entire world. This is why the entire CV-19 was global and not just in the USA.

The only remedy here is to be and remain close to God. We must learn to trust Him in all things as Joseph in Genesis learned. Now is not the time to doubt Him. Now is the time to lean on Him.

News and Notes Update: January 11, 2021

Right now, in America, Big Tech has more influence and power than the Constitution. That should be cause for grave concern. In fact, it’ll get worse. While the Left smiles smugly about the fact that those with whom they disagree are being silenced, they fail to understand history and the fact that Fascists will eventually come for them. They believe they are safe from expulsion or censure, when it reality, no one is safe from it. No one. In fact, I would argue – again from history – that those on the Left who support this type of fascist censorship will be on the receiving end of it as well, once the Left feels they have gained control over conservatives. It always happens in society as proven throughout history when dictators are allowed to take the reins.
